Currently looking to expand my Hi-Res music library and I am learning there are rip-offs as well as Gems so one needs to be careful. Example: Dire Straits Brothers in Arms was recorded in 44.1/16 so a higher bit PCM could be questionable. However, I have heard good things about the remaster as a multichannel SACD. Would it be worth listing good and bad examples here in AVS? I would think we would want different Genre threads? Where would this fit in AVS Forum so they would get the proper exposure? Speakers and source material seem to be the biggest factors in SQ so perhaps in Speakers. There has been some good discussions in the Revel thread but how do we build on that? I took a quick look at the Forums but did not find anything here. Thoughts?
P.S. American Idiot 96/24 from HDTracks has been added to my list thanks to thrand1.
